The original Super Swarm badge was released during the 2010 SWSW festival and conference and elevated the swarm goal from 50 to 250 check-ins. Today, Foursquare has upped the ante again with the launch of two new higher check-in count badges: The Super Duper Swarm which needs 500 to unlock and the Epic Swarm that is available when the check-in count reaches 1000.
Atlanta has seen 5 Super Swarm unlockings and all within the last two months. The first was unlocked during Dragon*Con on September 4th. The 2nd and 3rd were achieved during the 2010 NLDS series between the Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants at Turner Field and the 4th was hit during the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals game on October 24th. Coincidentally, the 5th Super Swarm was unlocked today when the Conan Team Coco Blimp stopped by Atlanta for a visit.
When and what Atlanta venue will be the first to reach the 500 or 1000 check-in level?
